My Pet Peeve – Drextors

Drextors – My word definition of people who text while driving

This is my pet Peeve. As a Motorcyclist it is one of our greatest fears, those who text and use the phone whist driving.
I have known of a young girl, she was not paying attention, texting and ran straight into a motorcyclist and took his leg off. How would you like that on your conscience. Plus I see young Mother, with kids in the car texting away not paying attention to them or the road.
I see enough of it and have seen some scary near misses because of it and these statistic prove how dangerous it is.
